Whitehawk Watercolour, Present Day

Jane Hawkins, a Whitehawk allotment holder and Museum volunteer has produced a wonderful sketch of Whitehawk Camp in its present environment.

The next step is to sketch it during the early Neolithic, but this just raises lots of questions.

Was it part of a wider ritual landscape ?

How did you access the monument ?

What was the tree/scrub cover like ?

Were there small settlements nearby ?

What did early Neolithic houses look like ?

Definitely food for thought…
